caramelized bourbon peach ice cream, baked potato soup, and Russian eggplant dip (for cookbook club). And I could have shared any of those. (The eggplant dip doesn't photograph well...) Happily, I made it up to the craft room and finished Jolly by Miss Crescent's Crowne (JCS Ornament Issue).
I stitched this ornament in September 2012. I'm actually kind of pleased that it only took me two years to finish. (Seriously, wait until we get to the bottom of that FUFY pile!)
I'm not going to lie, sewing with that pompom trim was a bitch. I wish I had a walking foot, but I did make do with a zipper foot. Still some of the pompoms got caught on the wrong side of the project. I did all the things I was supposed to do (like baste the trim) and well, sometimes done is good. Yes, the ornament is displayed on the backing fabric. Bright enough for you?
I'm really pleased with people showing their stash (show yours!) and more generally with the positive comments from the changes I've made to the blog thus far. I really feel energized for crafting, but maybe that's just the change in the weather?
